Can't wait to see the paint and the weathering... so beautifull so far. Thank you so much for your nice pictures.

Not yet busy with painting but the building part is more or less finished. Looks pretty much like an F-15E to me [smile]. As I mentioned before the fit of this kit is very nice, even if the engineering is kind of complex. So nothing worth mentioning, except some tiny dot of filler here and there. Here are some progress pictures...

I saw once F-15 performing power flight during МАКС-2001/3. It was very different from stall-speed flights of MiG-29s and Su-27s. Cool sight it was. Then my British Japanese passion let me go, I build one of these.

Are those exhaust resin or kit parts? If kit they are gorgeous

Nice building Fabion, but by now I think we all expect nothing else

It’s all GWH plastic. Great, right?

Looks like a perfect result with a more or less perfect kit. Looking forward to seeing it with some paint. The exhausts are amazing, they're making it hard for after market producers with kit detail like this.

All ready to start painting but doubting what to do first: metallic exhaust or base colors...

I think it’s better to paint the metallic first, but not a big fan of masking it afterwards for spraying the base color. Any suggestions?

That's the way I choosed for the Su-35. The downside is as you said the masking, but I think it's easier to get a nice NMF without the extra paint layers underneath.

If you use AK Extreme Metal it masks ok, suggest reducing tackiness by placing on back of hand first. As long as you gently peel it back and don't lift, you should have no problems.

I have been doing some experimenting with AK EM range on a scrap model. I found even with using Tamiya masking tape dirrect onto AK black for metal primed NMF, the tape didn't lift the paint with only the slightest trace of metal finish on the tape after removing and I could see no difference to the masked and none mask NMF.

I did let it dry 24 hours before masking and I gave the primer 1 hour before NMF applied

Hope that helps you Fabian
